Jabberwocky Reviews

August 27, 2020
A prologue to the brilliance of what was to come from Terry Gilliam, Jabberwocky is at its best an exciting experiment from the auteur in tone and form.

The movie strains too hard, is far too long, and its irreverent formlessness, a virtue in previous Monty Python endeavors, here seems simply dull and tasteless.
August 27, 2018
not a particularly good film, even though it is an often clever and exceedingly efficient in its absurdist experimentation mixing fantasy and comedy and romance.

Nothing builds into full-blooded absurdity, and the enormous cast of British comic specialists is given little opportunity to help out (though they were presumably recruited just for that purpose).

Jabberwocky will certainly be of interest to both Gilliam and [Monty] Python fans; we just can't see it ever becoming a favorite of either.

Medieval pigsty-jamboree

Terry Gilliam's visionary humor and style is on full display here.

The cast looks like it was recruited from a Pasolini movie, the budget-concious framing is claustrophobic, and there's way too much smoke

Gilliam wins major points for so thoroughly debunking the Dark Ages.

Infuse the "dark ages adventure" with some mildly amusing Python-style comedy bits and you have a strong sense of what Jabberwocky is all about.
